In this article “The U.S. government needs a comprehensive doctrine addressing cybersecurity instead of the current patchwork of policies and agencies dealing with cyberthreats, according to a group of experts.

The lack of an overarching cybersecurity doctrine inhibits the ability of the U.S. and its allies to work together and provides little deterrence for groups that attack the U.S., the experts said during an event to unveil a new book, “#Cyberdoc No Borders — No Boundaries” at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, a technology and science think tank.

Without a doctrine defining the U.S government’s response to cyberthreats, the U.S. will “lurch from crisis to crisis,” said Timothy Sample, co-author of the book, and vice president at the Battelle Memorial Institute Special Programs Organization, another tech and science think tank.”
